Liz Truss was grilled on her Brexit stance as she voted to remain in the European Union during the 2016 referendum. She was alslo questioned on her ability to carry through Brexit and the Northern Ireland Protocol conundrum. BBC host Nick Robinson began by asking: “And your presentation if you don’t want to accept that you’re modelling yourself on her (Margaret Thatcher), is that like her you are a conviction politician.
